2019/0312 - 154 Portsmouth Road, Cobham

Minutes:

                    Three late letters of objection had been received.

 

                    The Sub-Committee was addressed by Mr. D. Bellchamber, an objector and Mr. A. Mahendru, the applicant.

 

                        The Sub-Committee, having reviewed the relevant material considerations, concluded that due to its appearance, specifically the large display windows, the increased size of the building and the external materials used, the development would be out of keeping with the surrounding area and detrimental to the visual amenities of the existing street scene. Accordingly, the Sub-Committee resolved to

 

            Refuse permission, contrary to the Officer’s recommendation for the following reason

 

          1. Due to its appearance, particularly the large display windows, the increased size of the building and the external materials used, the proposed development would be out of keeping with the character of the surrounding area and detrimental to the visual amenities of the existing street scene. The proposal is therefore contrary to the requirements of Policy CS17 of the Elmbridge Core Strategy 2011 and Policy DM2 of the Elmbridge Development Management Plan 2015.
